River Island – S/S’12 Preview

Hi!

All the retro inspiration of both runway and street style over the last few seasons has translated into some interesting High Street collections. River Island‘s S/S’12 collection is a mash-up of ’90’s RnB culture and Versace – inspired pieces Vs 60’s Chelsea Girl and psychedelic prints. Makes me want to dress like Salt’n’Pepa and listen to the The Velvet Underground.

Chelsea Girl was originally a British High Street store that opened in 1965, before transforming itself into River Island in 1988. The design of the modern Chelsea Girl collection is headed up by River Island 2007 Bursary winner, Lucy Moller. A graduate from Dublin’s NCAD. The collection includes original print designs taken from Chelsea Girl pieces that were both bought from eBay, and sourced from staff members at River Island.

    I LOVE Chelsea Girl. I actually prefer to wear Chelsea Girl stuff instead of the normal RI clothes, which look short/teenagey on me. Although I do mix loud tops with jeans 🙂
